Text

The options given are “Burn files to disc” or “Burn a DVD video disc“.

 

Response

My response is none of the options you are given me is amenable to my current need.

And, so if you are like me, and you do not want Windows Help every time you place in a new blank DVD, please read on.

 

Steps

Here are the steps:

  1. In the AutoPlay window, choose “View more AutoPlay options in Control Panel
  2. The Control Panel \ Hardware and Sound \ AutoPlay window appears
  3. For all Blank Media listed, please select the “Take no action” option
